I like this beach. Its centrally located, has beautiful white sand and an old time athmosphere at a low entree fee.

The beach is very quiet and pleasant. I would recommend water shoes because there are many urchins in the weedy bottom of the beach. I stepped on several and had to have the spines removed from my feet.

If you don't like crowded beaches, then this is where you need to go. Quiet and peaceful beach. Great view of the island in the back and of the ocean in the front.
